One of the seminal artists of our time, Paul Taylor continues to shape the homegrown American art of modern dance that he has helped define since becoming a professional dancer and pioneering choreographer in 1954. The Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center celebrates its tenth consecutive season of performances by the Taylor Company.

Columbus Day weekend program:

Roses (1985)
Choreography by Paul Taylor
Set to music by Richard Wagner and Heinrich Baermann, Roses is a paean to love and relationships in various stages.  Some couples’ duets illustrate youthful ardor and love’s first blush.  A central duet suggests a more mature relationship characterized by support, security and the anticipation of one another’s needs.  Whether these are all distinct relationships or different stages of the same one is for the viewer to decide.

Continuum (2017)
Choreography by Lila York
Continuum is a new work by Taylor Alumna Lila York, commissioned through Taylor Company Commissions and made on the Taylor dancers. Continuum is set to Vivaldi’s “The Four Seasons” recomposed by Max Richter. It is an abstract work in nine sections that offer images of contemporary life in a fraught world. It is about finding peace in a hostile environment.

Arden Court (1981)
Choreography by Paul Taylor
One of the exuberant dances from Mr. Taylor’s highly acclaimed collection of works set to baroque music. Music by William Boyce accompanies a look at three kinds of relationships: supportive, competitive and flirtatious. “One of the few great art works created in [the 20th] century… exploring a new movement field of love and relationship. The women dance into the men’s arms as if Shakespeare had only written Romeo and Juliet the day before yesterday. One of the seminal works of our time… something extraordinary in the history of dance.” – New York Post
